How it all started

School by School was founded by Marie-Louise Almgren after many years of visiting India. Her first visit there was in the name of work but it has since then become a part of her life.

The first benches for Chitardai School were bought in 2006 by Inhouse AB, School by School’s first benefactor, and in early 2010 School by School was registered as a nonprofit organization, authorized by Svensk Insamlingskontroll, and started its current activities.

India is the worlds largest democracy with over a billion citizens. India is also one of the worlds fastest growing economies. The financial gap within the community is growing and over 80% of India’s population survive on only 2 USD a day. Poverty is primarily apparent in the rural parts of India.
